A Complete System

EVOLUTION III is complete and ready to install right out of the box. The system includes a full color touch screen controller with stylus for message entry, one printhead module with internal product sensor, power supply for up to four printheads, and the mounting bracketry.

 

Thermal Inkjet Technology by Hewlett Packard

The EVOLUTION III is powered with thermal ink jet technology (TIJ) by Hewlett Packard. This combination gives you the benefits of an affordable, compact, and efficient design coupled with the reliability of printhead technology by Hewlett Packard.

 

Optimum Print Resolution

EVOLUTION III delivers bold, highly legible and fully formed characters in a print resolution of 300 dpi at production line speed of up to 200 feet per minute.

 

Customized Print Area

Stitching four of the EVOLUTION III printheads gives you a total print area of 2” high by 24” long. Text, graphics and barcodes can be printed in any combination of font styles and character heights that are resident in the Evolution III controller.  Positioning of the text or graphics is easily accomplished by touching the screen with the stylus and creating either a text box or graphics area.

 

Ink Supply

Built into the cartridge is a 42 cc ink supply. Once the ink in the cartridge is depleted, it can be taken out, disposed of and a new ink cartridge inserted in just minutes.

 

Add-On Printheads

The EVOLUTION III is capable of controlling up to 8 printheads, with 4 on each side of the production line. The 4 printheads on the opposite of the line can only print the same message as those on the primary side. Each side of the production line will require a power supply and mounting bracket. One printhead module, mounting bracket and one power supply is included with the initial printer.  Adding another printhead is as simple as sliding it on. You can attach

up to three additional printheads on a single bracket by inserting the dovetail slide on one into the dovetail slot on the other. Once the printheads are attached to one another, the optional printhead alignment tool can be used to align the printheads for stitching applications. A small RS 485 data

cable is then used to connect the modules. This allows the touch screen controller to network all of the printheads on the production line.

 

Font Styles Character Heights and Graphics

EVOLUTION III is supplied with four built in font styles. Optional alternative fonts are available and can be downloaded into the controller through flash card media.  Logos are another option, and up to 6 can be stored in the controller. Logos can be printed up to 2” in height.  There are 12 built in barcode symbologies included and can be printed up to 2” high, The barcode software in the controller allows you to set the quiet zone, bar width, inter-bar spacing, human readable information and more.  Up to 3 different barcodes can be printed within the same message.
